Welcome to post three of the Into the Grey musical blog tour, in which I share videos of seven songs that feature in my 1970’s ghost novel Into the Grey, and explain what those songs mean to me and to the story. Today the tour is hosted by the lovely Melissa of My World in Books and Pages! This is one of my favorite of the blog entries as its one of my favorite moments in the book, where–to the background of ABBA winning the Eurovision–Pat frantically attempts to have a good time, while underneath secretly falling apart. Off you go now for a another wee taste of Into the Grey and a blast from ABBA as they sparkle their way through Waterloo in 1974.
- So many writers come to class with one question dominant in their mind, 'How do I make a living from this?' It's a fair enough question and one I always try to answer well - but it saddens me that it so often overshadows the more relevant questions of 'why am I writing' and 'what am I saying' and 'how do I keep it honest.'
[NOTE: I get many requests to read and comment on manuscripts, which I have to regretfully decline. However I do occasionally work as a consultant for The Inkwell Group If I am accepting MS's at the time and you ask for me by name, they will pass your work on to me.
